The Great Contempary Art Bubble

I would love to see this. Supposedly it can be bought from Ben Lewis's website, but I can't figure out how. It doesn't seem to be available from iTunes either (but so much that I want to see it not there--Paris, Texas, In the Mix, etc.--that I have stopped being disappointed when they don't have something).

I don't get too worked up over super-high prices and the people who pay them. After all, there is plenty of exciting contemporay art available at very reasonable prices. The main downside is when you have situations like with the New Museum or the Chaney Family shows at MFAH, in which a collector in essence hijacks a museum to show their collection. (Although I am sure the New Museum and the MFAH would object to the term "hijack").
